Welcome to Day #11 of Chocolate and Dates Theme Week.

Today's Organic Sea Salt Dark Chocolate (Covered Diced Dates) snack was distributed by Joolies Superfruit LLC (Coachella, CA).

Aroma notes for today's dark chocolate date nibbles included: dark chocolate; sweet-tart green (sugar + oxalis + vanilla); and faint dried fruit (date).

Texture: hearty, soft chew; plump, soft date pieces covered with smooth dark chocolate; with a very faint graininess (possibly from dates/rice flour).

Flavor notes included: smooth dark chocolate (with barely there vanilla), dates*, and tiny undulations of sea salt that balanced the sweetness. 

I liked the balance and layering of flavors; and the relatively short list of quality, organic ingredients. 

Ingredients: Dark Chocolate* (Unsweetened Chocolate*, Cane Sugar*, Cocoa Butter*, Natural Vanilla Extract*), Dates*, Rice Flour*, Sea Salt. (* Organic)

Allergen-related information: "Processed in a facility that also manufactures products that contain Milk, Wheat, Peanuts, and Tree Nuts." 

*This snack was made using upcycled Ugglies dates.
